Irish dance will be back in London next month when Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games returns to the Playhouse Theatre.
The hit dance spectacular, which has rarely been off the capital’s stage in the past year, will play from 10 October to 3 January.
Talking about the show’s return, which follows recent runs at the Dominion Theatre and London Palladium, Flatley said: “I’m delighted that London has once again welcomed us so warmly, and to be able to extend the show’s run by moving to the very beautiful Playhouse Theatre makes me feel immensely proud of what we’ve achieved. I am delighted for my dancers that they can continue to perform in this great city.”
James Keegan and Morgan Comer, who have both been trained by Flatley and performed during the production’s most recent West End residencies, will continue to lead the cast.
Rooted in Irish folklore, Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games tells a classic tale of good versus evil as Little Spirit travels through time to assist the titular noble in protecting his people from the dark lord Don Dorcha.
The production features groundbreaking new technology including holographs, special effects lighting, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and, of course, some of the greatest Irish dancers in the world.
Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games will open at the Playhouse Theatre following the current run of cult hit The Rocky Horror Show, which will be screened live to cinemas across the UK and Europe this evening when a cast including Stephen Fry, Mel Giedroyc and Emma Bunton takes to the stage.
